The Mediterranean Studies Forum at Stanford University is an emerging leader in the study of Mediterranean history, languages and history. To further develop our resources to their full potential, we actively seek support for our general operations and special projects. Your contribution may take the form of an expendable gift, annual pledge, or endowment. Endowment gifts provide naming opportunities for specific programs. Matching funds may be available for certain types of endowment gift .
General Operations / Program Support: Your gift supplements our research and teaching initiatives by bringing visitors from around the world to the campus for academic and public events, including lectures, workshops, conferences and arts events.
Lectureships: Endowed funds support lecturers and the costs associated with their coursework, ensuring a wide range of rich offerings for Stanford students. Gifts may provide the opportunity to name the lectureship and may qualify for matching funds from the Hewlett Challenge. We are currently seeking funds to endow a Turkish Language & Literature Lectureship at Stanford University.
Professorships: An endowed professorship is the highest academic honor that the university can bestow upon a member of its faculty. The holders of Stanford’s approximately 400 endowed professorships represent the most distinguished scholars in the university, and the donors of endowed professorships are among the university’s most generous and far-sighted benefactors. Endowing a professorship includes an opportunity to name the endowed chair and enables Stanford to expand its course offerings. Your gift may qualify for matching funds. We are currently seeking funds to endow a Professorship in Turkish Studies at Stanford University.
Visiting Professorships: Complementing the teaching of the Stanford faculty, scholars and professionals are recruited to teach Stanford students. Endowed funds support these visiting professors and the costs associated with their coursework, ensuring a wide range of rich offerings for students.
Other Projects: Should you like to designate your gift to support other projects (such as an endowed lecture series, postdoctoral fellowships, graduate fellowships, or language instruction programs), please contact us by email at email@example.com or by phone at (650) 736-8169.
